  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    We have had many posts on this subject and a number of theories, but has anyone solved a problem for good - well a few months or more? Perhaps we could even start a list and score each on probability. So far, I have discounted turbo seals, blocked air intake, valve stem seals, MAF sensor and...

  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    There is quite a bit of wind noise around the rubber seals on the front doors of most 9000's. Having found out that they are £136 each from Saab, I am looking for alternatives. Is there any treatment that will revitalise existing ones or a cheaper source for new ones anywhere? tk358
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Here's a potentially good find. This came from the Ads by Google section at the top of the page. As there seem to be a few head gasket issues around I clicked on this link. It appears to be a product that you put in the radiator, run the car and it permanently seals a leaking head! I am...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I’ve owned my SAAB 93 SSVector MY03 for over 2 years (7K-27k) and since that time have had a very irritating and frustrating suspension noise ( a cross between a rumble and bag of pebbles) in colder weather below 10C. The noise usually disappeared after a mile or two but the loudness and length...

  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Took my CDE to Abbott on Monday to have it's 90k service and one of their high-flow intercoolers. It's also been suffering from a missfire only under heavy load e.g top gear acceleration on the motorway. Abbott changed the spark plugs which cured the missfire until I reached the M25 on the way...

  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well, I've mentioned this before on here, but the last time I noticed rust on the edges of my RHS doors (reskinned before I had the car ), I attacked those areas with Kurust (!!!) and then used a Saab touch up pen to cover up. This did a reasonable job and lasted well during the summer, but...

    When accelerating uphill, at kickdown or at sudden acceleration at high speed on motorway to increase speed, the car "hiccups" (cuts-out) and resumes normally if you release the gas. Have tried new DI unit, new NGK's gapped at 1.0mm but problem still there!
